Pakistan After Bin Laden


Leon Panetta on what Pakistan knew about Osama Bin Laden

With 12ft walls, enormous footprint, and conspicuous location, al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden’s Abottabad compound probably raised suspicions in Pakistan, says former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in an interview with Judy Woodruff. Panetta was CIA director during the raid on Bin Laden’s compound, and transmitted President Obama’s order to go ahead with the operation.

Osama bin Laden's Killing vs. Burial by Sh. Omar Suleiman

ICNA Convention 2011 Question and Answer Session

ICNA's Statement on Killing of Osama bin Laden

JAMAICA, New York (May 2, 2011) -- The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) issued a press release this morning on the killing of Osama bin Laden by a US military operation outside Abbottabad, Pakistan yesterday.

Osama bin Laden posed a serious threat to the security of America and the world, and the removal of this threat is a significant turning point in the post-9/11 global War on Terror.

Our thoughts are first and foremost with the families of those killed on 9/11 and the countless innocent men, women and children who have died in the ensuing wars. We pray this news brings closure to these families and ultimately ushers in a new chapter of peace and understanding in America's history.

ICNA hopes that the Obama administration will use this pivotal moment as an opportunity to rapidly end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and ensure the safe return of our troops.

We reiterate President Obama's statement that America is not at war with Islam and Osama bin Laden was not representative of Muslims. We must remember with conviction the unity that brought us out of the devastation of September 11, 2001, and work to preserve that unity in coming days.

The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the promotion of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services and relief efforts.

New 9/11 exhibit explains hunt for Osama bin Laden

(23 Oct 2019) Declassified US government documents and artifacts are part of a new exhibition on the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack.
Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden opens November 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011.
We have been given a whole range of materials that demonstrate different aspects of the hunt, Clifford Chanine, curator of the bin Laden exhibition said.
We have some elements that were taken from bin Laden's earlier headquarters in Afghanistan before 9/11, known as Tarnak Farms and things that US intelligence agencies and military seized from that compound after 9/11, after the US forces went in, that really helped them understand how al-Qaida operated.
The exhibit presents the hunt for bin Laden as a sort of who-done-it come alive with graphics, videos and the voices of the protagonists, from intelligence agents, former President Barack Obama and members of the US Navy SEALs team that raided bin Laden's home and shot and killed him.
Photos show the scenes of the search, from caves to a wild mountain range in Afghanistan where bin Laden was believed to have been hiding. He was under protection of the Taliban that issued al-Qaida members passports allowing them to move around freely. One of these passports will be displayed.
In other images, American military personnel huddle in strategy sessions, and searching terrain outside. Visitors will see trunks containing items gathered during various US raids of al-Qaida locations that might have yielded evidence of bin Laden's whereabouts.
The exhibit details the failure to catch bin Laden before he fled Afghanistan. One artifact on display from his al-Qaida training camp there is a blue wall fragment seen in propaganda videos featuring bin Laden.
After he disappeared, law enforcement experts and members of military and civilian anti-terrorism units describe how they hounded down al-Qaida followers working to hide him. Finally, members of Navy SEAL Team 6 explain, in their own words, how they acted on a tip that led them to descend on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as President Obama and his cabinet watched from the White House.
Once we located the compound, which the key moment was when CIA and other intelligence community personnel identified the couriers and that led back to the compound. Then we started to look at the compound and direct collection against it, said Mark Kelton, the retired CIA Pakistan station chief during the operation to find bin Laden.
Suffice it to say that over time it increased confidence that indeed it was Osama bin Laden that was there. Or a high probability, at least in my mind and in the mind of certainly Director (Leon) Panetta (Director of the CIA from 2009-2011), who ultimately was the driving force behind the operation, Kelton added.
The exhibit includes images and a model of the home where bin Laden was shot to death in his bedroom.
The 9/11 museum is a nonprofit body located on the 16-acre World Trade Center site where more than 2,700 people died and are memorialised with two reflecting pools in the footprints of the fallen twin towers. The museum's collection includes more than 60-thousand items that tell intimate stories linked to the attacks and its aftermath.
